Let the Day Begin


Turn the page
today you can
if you couldn't before
your chapter begins
today
each day begins this way
a gracious gift
to live again
today
breathe life into your day
accept,
let go
forgive
exist
today is yours
to choose to be
to be you
let your day be free
Let the day begin.


Oh, today. Today is March 1. I wait for this day every year. I breathe joy into this day every year. This day is always a symbol of beginnings for me and beginnings are important. Sometimes we need a tangible day or moment to move past, move on, be free. Today is that day for me.
Today is also a two-fold post, Poetry Friday, which I have missed for several weeks and the beginning of the SOLC. Enjoy today and breathe.
It is just beginning.

  5. "To live again" those are some powerful words. It's always good to have a fresh start into something, and that's what starting this challenge does.

  6. So many times you have "breathed life" into my world by your words. May you do that for many others in this March as well!

  7. I also look forward to March. I love a month of slicing and I love March in the classroom. I am feeling good about a month of slicing...bring it on! However, I'm less excited about March in the classroom. My class is different this year. I'm feeling like my usual March might be April this year. Scary but true.
